This is a day of contending In fluences with the ruling: stars fore casting- good. Mercury and Mars are adverse, but Neptune, the Sun and Venus are all In beneflc aspect. There is a sign that seems to af fect newspaper and magazine in terests, especially where advertis ing is concerned, and discussion of unusual conditions may ba wide spread. During this sway there may be undue anxiety concerning military matters. Soldiers come under a rule mak ing for great achievement* and the attainment of fame. The Suna is In a place foreshadowing freatest honors for Americans. This should be an auspicious government of the stars for women who will attain ambitiona in pub lic affairs, the seers declare. The Sun presages success for men who hold placea of large responsi bility. The planets indicate that tha spirit of criticism will change to commendation. Venus warns women that they must accept seriously many new lines of work for the war. The aspect seems to forecast changes for women of means. Astrologers declare that the women of America have not yet come to a full appreciation of their duty during th$ war and predict supreme achievements when they begin to learn what sacrifice means. This prognostication ap plies to the gfeat mass of women who "think they serve." Theaters and places of amuse ment are subject to the best direc tion today. Labor comes under a svfray that is believed to indicate changes in organization heads, larger recog nition of women as executives and extraordinary activity. Persons whose birthdate It is will probably have good luck in finan cial matters during the year, but they should be cautioua in avoiding disputes. Those who are employed will profit.

Marlr.es, who has been cited for bravery by Gen. Pershing for taking a truck load of ammunition Into Boureachea, near Chateau Thier ry, over a road swept by artillery and machine fun Are, was a hero of the war of 189*. He waa awarded th?

Austria had 79 divisions last year. Now she has only 77. having been forced to con solidate some divisions. Haa Power to Wane. Germany's leaders have refuaed as long as possible to lessen the number of divisions, since war la fought today with divisions and not with numbers of men. Originally Germany had about 17.000 men to a division. Today the number Is near li.000. The time is not far off according to military ex perts. when the German power will begin to dwindle and then Germany will find herself driven to the con solidation of divisiona. Reports received here also show that the new class of young soldiers, known as the class of 19S1. will not he available to the German army he fore October and will number not more that 450.000 men. Once a year thereafter. It Is estimated, Germany can gain only 4.V>,000 men for her fighting ranks, unleaa some great change la made In the use of men in the factories and in other pur suits.
